The Ceed’s pricing is very aggressive indeed, especially when you consider how much standard kit you get for your money. The seven-year/100,000-mile transferable warranty also provides some reassurance and also has a positive effect on resale values. Fuel economy and CO2 emissions are also pretty competitive.
Kia Ceed Sportswagon quality & reliability
The overall quality of the Ceed is good. The cabin is smartly trimmed, with plenty of soft-touch plastics and expensive-looking decorative panels. The seven-year/100,000-mile warranty should also give you confidence about the car’s mechanical durability.
Kia Ceed Sportswagon safety & security
While the Sportswagon hasn’t been crash tested by Euro NCAP, the five-door Ceed achieved a maximum five-star rating. It’s disappointing that Kia doesn’t go the extra mile on safety equipment, though; there’s no driver’s knee airbag or city-braking assist. Theft resistance is boosted by deadlocks, an automatic door-locking function and locking wheelnuts.
